Natural Ways to Fight Ebola Revealed by Scientists – YouTube
Being prepared will not cost much ; fight possible Ebola outbreak with alternative measures not endorsed by the system that wants you dead
(Rivero saying at the least get black-light bulbs for existing fixtures, a mix of UV blacklight with ordinary bulbs, have bleach, gloves and masks, stockpiles of vitamin C and cinnamon on hand and make your own colloidal silver with 999 or preferably 9999 silver coinage. Even the Ron Paul dollars work! The best coin is 2 Canadian $5 coins which can be found at any coin and bullion dealer and many banks. Use low voltage and do research it and be careful, and if not comfortable experimenting get like Michel Rivero suggests, a colloidal silver generator from a reputable source, like silverlungs or naturalnews)

by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Efforts to bring natural Ebola treatments to suffering West Africans have been squelched by the World Health Organization (WHO), which recently blocked multiple shipments of nanosilver solution measuring at 10 parts per million (ppm) from entering the region, leaving thousands to suffer needlessly.
WHO officials also reportedly called off a trial at an Ebola isolation ward where local health authorities were set to begin administering the silver, which the U.S. government previously demonstrated is highly effective against Ebola. WHO ordered the trial not to proceed despite the fact that it had earlier voiced support for experimental treatments.
Both WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have given their blessing to experimental therapies for Ebola, citing a lack of proven treatment options. But when it comes to using therapeutic silver, all bets are off, it seems.
Authorities block small shipment of nanosilver three times
According to the Natural Solutions Foundation (NSF), efforts to ship nanosilver into Sierra Leone have thus far failed. The organization has been trying to deliver a shipment of 200 bottles of nanosilver 10 ppm, and 100 tubes of nanosilver gel, to no avail. At this point, the shipment has been returned to the U.S. for the third time.
“That parcel, shipped Air Express at a cost of $3400 to Sierra Leone on August 20, never made it out of Paris,” reads an NSF action alert. “Air France has yet to find a reason for that. But it made its way back to the US again, apparently for the 3rd time without being delivered to Africa.”
People are dying, and bureaucrats are still playing politics with silver
Formerly classified documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) reveal that antimicrobial silver solutions like the kind NSF is trying to deliver to Africa have proven benefits in fighting Ebola and other forms of hemorrhagic fever. Research conducted by the DOD and several other federal agencies back in 2008 confirmed this, though health regulators largely ignored it.
A presentation entitled “Silver Nanoparticles Neutralize Hemorrhagic Fever Viruses,” which revealed exactly what its name suggests, was buried and kept secret for years. In essence, investigators determined that simple silver solutions neutralize viruses like Arenavirus and Filovirus, both of which are related to Ebola.
Interestingly, the research was conducted with the backing of the DOD’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the U.S. Strategic Command Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction. The presentation was given by researchers from the Applied Biotechnology Branch, 711th Human Performance Wing of the Air Force Research Laboratory.
But not a single mainstream media outlet reported on the presentation, and to this day its findings have been largely ignored by establishment health authorities. Sadly, this political quagmire — nanosilver is an obvious threat to pharmaceutical interests, and thus is being marginalized — is resulting in thousands of needless deaths in West Africa with no end in sight. From Jim Stone, August 1, 2014:
Here is the vitamin C treatment, complete with MOA. This is a treatment and not a cure, your immune system wipes out the virus, and the treatment gives your immune system time to do it. Here is what Ebola does that is fatal: It causes the complete removal of all vitamin C from the body. No one actually knows what mechanism is involved in doing this, other than a malfunction that is not permanently destructive to whatever is triggered to remove all vitamin C. All the researchers know is that vitamin C drops to zero and all the symptoms of ebola are consistent with a complete loss of vitamin C.
How do I know this? A doctor who has remained anonymous and has worked with ebola victims has discovered this and sent it to this web site, at last check this cannot be googled which confirms this doctor did not just copy paste, SO POST IT EVERYWHERE; GET THIS OUT THERE, THE TREATMENT FOR EBOLA WHICH WILL PREVENT DEATH IS KNOWN AND THIS IS AN EMERGENCY REQUEST FOR MY READERS TO SPREAD THIS INFO AND STOP THIS EBOLA ATTACK IN ITS TRACKS.
From an anonymous doctor:
“The very first symptoms of ebola are exactly the same as scurvy, which is caused by inadequate vitamin C. Though scurvy is seldom fatal as a primary condition, scurvy also represents only a partial deficiency of vitamin C, the body still has a LOT of vitamin C compared to zero, which ebola causes. Absent ANY vitamin C, blood vessels become very weak and start to lose blood, and platelets become ineffective and unable to trigger clots. So death by ebola is caused by massive internal bleeding and loss of blood, which can be stopped simply by taking enormous doses of vitamin C until the immune system succeeds in killing off the virus.”
Ebola is probably the best known of a class of viruses known as hemorrhagic fever viruses. In fact, Ebola virus was initially recognized in 1976. Other less known but related viral syndromes include yellow fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever, Rift Valley fever, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, Kyasanur Forest disease, Omsk hemorrhagic fever, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever, Brazilian hemorrhagic fever, Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, and Lassa fever. The Ebola virus infection, also known as African hemorrhagic fever, has the distinction of having the highest case-fatality rate of the viral infections noted above, ranging from 53% to 88%.
These viral hemorrhagic fever syndromes share certain clinical features. The Cecil Textbook of Medicine notes that these diseases are characterized by capillary fragility, which translates to easy bleeding, that can frequently lead to severe shock and death. These diseases also tend to consume and/or destroy the platelets, which play an integral role in blood clotting. The clinical presentation of these viral diseases is similar to scurvy, which is also characterized by capillary fragility and a tendency to bleed easily. Characteristic skin lesions develop, which are actually multiple tiny areas of bleeding into the skin that surround the hair follicles. some cases even include bleeding into already healed scars.
In the classic form of scurvy that evolves very slowly from the gradual depletion of vitamin C body stores, the immune system will be sufficiently compromised for infection to claim the patient’s life before the extensive hemorrhage that occurs after all vitamin C stores have been completely exhausted.
Ebola virus and the other viral hemorrhagic fevers are much more likely to cause hemorrhaging before any other fatal infection has a chance to become established. This is because the virus so rapidly and totally metabolizes and consumes all available vitamin C in the bodies of the victims that an advanced stage of scurvy is literally produced after only a few days of the disease.
The scurvy is so complete that the blood vessels generally cannot keep from hemorrhaging long enough to allow an infective complication to develop.
Also, the viral hemorrhagic fevers typically only take hold and reach epidemic proportions in those populations that would already be expected to have low body stores of vitamin C, such as is found in many of the severely malnourished Africans. In such individuals, an infecting hemorrhagic virus will often wipe out any remaining vitamin C stores before the immune systems can get the upper hand and initiate recovery.
When the vitamin C stores are rapidly depleted by large infecting doses of an aggressive virus, the immune system gets similarly depleted and compromised. However, this point is largely academic after hemorrhaging throughout the body has begun.
To date, no viral infection has been demonstrated to be resistant to the proper dosing of vitamin C as classically demonstrated by Klenner. However, not all viruses have been treated with Klenner-sized vitamin C doses, or at least the results have not been published. Ebola viral infection and the other acute viral hemorrhagic fevers appear to be diseases that fall into this category. Because of the seemingly exceptional ability of these viruses to rapidly deplete vitamin C stores, even larger doses of vitamin C would likely be required in order to effectively reverse and eventually cure infections caused by these viruses.
Cathcart (1981), who introduced the concept of bowel tolerance to vitamin C discussed earlier, hypothesized that Ebola and the other acute viral hemorrhagic fevers may well require 500,000 mg of vitamin C daily to reach bowel tolerance! Whether this estimate is accurate, it seems clear as evidenced by the scurvy-like clinical manifestations of these infections that vitamin C dosing must be vigorous and given in extremely high doses. If the disease seems to be winning, then even more vitamin C should be given until symptoms begin to lessen. Obviously, these are viral diseases that would absolutely require high doses of vitamin C intravenously as the initial therapy. The oral administration should begin simultaneously, but the intravenous route should not be abandoned until the clinical response is complete. Death occurs too quickly with the hemorrhagic fevers to be conservative when dosing the vitamin C. (from Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins:Curing the Incurable by Thomas E. Levy MD JD)
Jim Stone Insists Colloidal Silver Is Ineffective Against A Virus-I Strongly Disagree With This
Posted on August 3, 2014 by Dublinsmick
Neither I nor Jim Stone are physicians however the claim that Colloidal silver does not work against Viruses goes against a long history that suggests that it does. In fact the history of silver suggests that no pathogen can remain in tact in the vicinity of silver. Native American Indians knew this as well as many other culture. He suggests that vitamin C or ascorbic acid is the better route.
Ascorbic acid is certainly worthwhile but to write off silver seems absurd. Early settlers put a silver coin in barrels of water when crossing the plains and the armies of Alexander the Great swallowed a silver coin daily, fished it out later, washed it off and then swallowed it once again! Native Americans boiled those silver bracelets and drank the water in cases of sickness. Now Jim Stone suggest a virus works inside a cell. This is true but absorb enough silver and it also collects inside cells and works as an early warning and protection system. At least that is what I have come to believe.
I am going to tell you a little secret, you don’t have to run out and by loads of expensive colloidal silver. You can put a sterling spoon in pan of water, bring it to a boil and then simmer it for an hour or so. This is pretty close to nanno silver and is exactly what Jews do with the supposedly miraculous chicken soup to kill a cold. They don’t tell you about the silver spoon however. (Making colloidal silver is easy though)
Along with silver I would suggest those concerned take a look at this also. Four theives who were robbing graves during the black plague were drinking this herbal concoction used by Nostradamus to cure people of that era. They were never sick and France uses one of those herbs (the rue tree) as their national plant.
Research Proves That Cinnamon Is A Potent Antibiotic
September 17th, 2013
As far back as 1978 research on cinnamon proved that it had many health giving properties, including those of a natural antibiotic. Why then do we hear nothing about this?
At a time when microbiologists across the globe are warning that we face a bleak future as more and more antibiotics fail to cure infections, you would have thought that the properties of this naturally occurring spice would be mentioned a little more often.
An article published by the Applied and Environmental Microbiology department of the US National Library of Medicine said in 1978:
The compound inhibits the growth and toxin production of mycotoxin-producing fungi. The substance completely inhibited the growth of Aspergillus parasiticus and A. flavus at 100 microgram/ml and A. ochraceus and A. versicolor at 200 microgram/ml. It inhibited the production of aflatoxin B1 by over 90% at 6.25 microgram/ml, ochratoxin A at 25 microgram/ml, and sterigmatocystin at 50 microgram/ml. The substance also displayed a strong inhibitory effect on the growth of five dermatophytoses species, e.g., Microsporum canis (minimum inhibitory concentration, 3.12 to 6.25 microgram/ml). However, no antibacterial effect was observed at concentrations as high as 50 microgram/ml.
A highbrow way of saying that a substance in cinnamon kills a wide variety of micro-organisms.
Another study, this one in 1999 stated:
Lead researcher Erdogan Ceylan, M.S., reported that in apple juice samples inoculated with about one million E. coli O157:H7 bacteria, about one teaspoon (0.3 percent) of cinnamon killed 99.5 percent of the bacteria in three days at room temperature (25 C). When the same amount of cinnamon was combined with either 0.1 percent sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate, preservatives approved by the Food and Drug Administration, the E. coli were knocked out to an undetectable level. The number of bacteria added to the test samples was 100 times the number typically found in contaminated food.
Escherichia Coli 0157 is a major problem causing outbreaks of food poisoning that is very hard to treat with conventional antibiotics yet recent outbreaks have seen dozens dying with no mention of cinnamon being effective against it. The research article is actually entitled “Cinnamon is lethal to E.Coli 0157 H7″.
In 2004 research suggested that cinnamon could be used in the treatment of diabetes as it has the ability to lower blood glucose levels.
Again in 2004 cinnamon oil was shown to kill mosquitoes.
In 2009 cinnamon was shown to be effective against MRSA.
In 2011 cinnamon and garlic were sited as effective antibiotics in chickens.
Natural health practitioners have been saying for years that cinnamon has a wide variety of benefits yet still the average household uses it for nothing more than sprinkling on apples.
Anecdotal evidence going back generations suggest that gargling with a cinnamon mouthwash can alleviate the pain of mouth ulcers and clear throat infections.
Millions of people drink cinnamon and honey tea regularly as part of their general health routine.
Can all these people and all these studies be wrong?
In an increasingly crowded world, where an increasing number of antibiotics are failing, you would think the governments would be falling over themselves to develop cinnamon as a safe, natural alternative that can treat a wide variety of infections. It’s not difficult to grow in the right conditions, and as only the bark is used the tree can be ‘harvested’ many times during its life. It would certainly be a simple matter for almost any government to grow and harvest cinnamon should they choose to.
Maybe that’s the problem. We do live on an increasingly crowded planet, one that many in power have made it obvious they would like to reduce the population of. Infection, should it continue evolving and mutating, building resistance to the drugs we have could well be the de-population mechanism that so many of the elite seem to want.

Cinnamon Kills Viruses
Posted on August 15, 2014
There is increasing evidence that Cinnamon kills viruses. Antibiotics do not work against viruses because they are not alive. A bacteria is a reproducing life form. A virus are DNA/RNA fragments on a protein coat that has injected itself into a living cell and gets that cell to reproduce. That means killing those cells will essentially kill you. A viral drug works by stopping the viruses injecting themselves into the cells. A bacteria by comparison stands separate from a cell and can therefore be isolated killed separately without killing the cell.
With advent of the Ebola virus and other pandemics like SARS perhaps it is time to look for a natural solution. One such solution for a possible anti viral drug to kill a virus is cinnamon. Specifically Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil and maybe even Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil. This would the super concentrated Cinnamon from the Cinnamon bark and the cinnamon leaves.
Cinnamon Bark Oil, distilled from the bark of the Ceylon Cinnamon Tree has high levels of Cinnamaldehyde (about 40%-60%) known for it’s wonderful medicinal properties from blood sugar control to powerful anti-bacterial properties that can penetrate the brain blood barrier when taken internally.
Cinnamon leaf Oil distilled from the leaves of the tree has much less cinnamaldehyde (about 15%) but it has another magical ingredient, Eugenol (about 40-75%) which is also an extremely powerful bacteria killer. The Leaf Oil is not as refined as the Bark Oil or smell as nice, but it’s much cheaper and great for topical applications, especially to kill anti biotic resistant bacteria. If you have gone for a hospital stay, this is the thing to take because it is effective against so many antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Cinnamon kills a virus we say? Yes. So while Cinnamon has been known mostly for its powerful anti-bacterial properties, it is becoming evident that it could also be a virus fighter. Legend has it that during the 1918 influenza outbreak, workers at cinnamon factories seemed immune to the Spanish flu which decimated the population. According to this Stanford University article a popular remedy for the Spanish flu (a virus) was cinnamon in powder or oil form mixed with milk to reduce temperature.
So what is the evidence for Cinnamon as a Virus fighter? Well here it is.
1. HIV and Cinnamon
An Indian study based out of Pune India claimed that a Cinnamon derived procyanidin polymer can turn HIV infected people into HIV controllers (those who carry the Virus but do not develop full blown AIDS). Apparently they extracted a molecule (which remains unknown) which protects an important defense protein by neutralizing the HIV virus. While not a cure they suggest this polymer could enhance the immune response system against HIV.
This survey of Indian plants for HIV found two varieties of Cinnamon Cinnamomum cassia and Cardiospermum helicacabum, have compounds that are effective against HIV-1 and HIV-2. While this study was not done with Ceylon Cinnamon, the probability it applying to Ceylon Cinnamon is reasonable. Besides Cassia Cinnamon has high levels of Coumarin which can damage your liver.
2. Adenovirus and Cinnamon
Cinnamon is a common a common ingredient in traditional Asian herbal medicine, particularly for chest related ailments. This study shows that cinnamaldhye (found especially high in distilled Cinnamon Bark Oil) is effective against the adenovirus, a respiratory illness. Symptoms of respiratory illness caused by the adenovirus infection range from the common cold syndrome to pneumonia, croup, and bronchitis, diarrhea, pink eye, fever, bladder inflammation and neurologic disease.
3. Herpes and Cinnamon
This abstract found that Cinnzeylanine isolated from Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Ceylon Cinnamon) inhibits the proliferation of herpes simplex virus type 1 in Vero cells. Another study in 2000 found Eugeol (the common ingredient in Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil) was virucidal and showed no cytotoxicity at the concentrations tested. Meaning it was effective against HSV-1 and HSV-2 (Herpes) at doses of 25.6 & 16.2 microg/mL.
So can we conclude that Cinnamon is effective as a virus fighter? All we can say it is early days. What this shows is that both Cinnamaldehye (from steam distilling the bark) and Eugenol (from steam distilling cinnamon leaf) are both effective, albeit for different strains of viruses.
Dr. Mercola references Professor Michael Ovadia in 2007, a spiritual scientist from Tel Aviv University, as having has signed a research and license deal on his patent-pending cinnamon extract, which has potent anti-viral properties. Nothing has come out of it yet.
The main thing we can learn from this is Cinnamon has the potential to be an antiviral. A little bit of Cinnamon, taken in moderation as part of overall program of moderate exercise and a health diet is really all we can do. We tend to think of Cinnamon as a preventer as opposed to a cure and that is the approach we should all use. The Chinese had this saying; you fire your doctor if they get you sick but keep them as long as you remain healthy.
HOW TO TAKE CINNAMON TO KILL A VIRUS
All the research is fine a dandy, but how do you take it to kill a Virus you ask. You can’t really swallow some Cinnamon Bark Oil or Leaf Oil. Cinnamon Oils are so powerful, that more than a drop or two might burn your insides.
If you do take Cinnamon Bark Oil you should consult a medical professional. And only use good quality Cinnamon Oil. Technically both Cinnamon leaf oil and bark oil can be taken internally provided they are steam distilled to a high quality with high levels of cinnamaldehyde (in Cinnamon Bark this should be 40% and up) or high levels Eugenol (in cinnamon leaf oil this should be 70% and up). There are also some good books on Amazon on essential oils that you try to follow.
In the meantime you can try Ceylon Cinnamon Black Tea infused with Cinnamon Bark Oil. If you are allergic to caffeine you can just boil some Ceylon Cinnamon sticks and make a tea out of it. Each stick has only small amounts of Bark Oil but taken cumulatively everyday it probably adds to an overall healthy life style that just might ward of that virulent flu.
Using ordinary blacklight UV lightbulbs or more powerful UV sterilizing devices to kill Ebola contamination
UV light kills cells by damaging DNA. It causes the nucleic acids in DNA to break their bonds and pair incorrectly (thymine seems to be especially affected). This causes the DNA to either be unreadable or misread, and that in turn causes the bacteria or viruses to be unable to carry out their normal functions or reproduce correctly.
As you know UV light is harmful for most organisms – the effects are more pronounced for bacteria and viruses, since the DNA in viruses and bacteria tends to be poorly shielded (it’s more exposed to the UV light). Complex organisms tend to shield better their DNA – for example humans produce melanin (tanning), many animals have fur, pigs will coat themselves in mud, all of which protects from UV light, and therefore better shielding their DNA.
Additionally, some bacteria, and especially viruses, have no or very poor DNA repair mechanisms and very little redundancy. Complex organisms tend to have pretty good DNA repair mechanisms and more redundancy.
Just as a note, the UV light used for sterilization tends to be much more potent (has shorter wavelength and a higher energy level) than environmental UV light, and is more harmful to humans.
Disinfection for VHF [viral hemorrhagic fever – like Ebola]-Contaminated Items
“Ordinary household bleach, soap and water are useful disinfectants against viruses causing VHF.6 They are low in cost and commonly available.”
Ordinary Household Bleach: The viruses causing VHF are very sensitive to bleach solution. This manual describes a low-cost disinfection system using two bleach solutions: a solution of 1:10 and a solution of 1:100. Detailed instructions for preparing the solutions are in Section 5.1.
Soap and Clean Water: Scrubbing with soap and water before disinfection removes infectious body fluids and other foreign matter from contaminated items. This makes bleach solutions more effective. Detailed instructions for preparing solutions of soapy water are in Section 5.2.
Sterilization: Heat sterilization requires special equipment, such as an autoclave or steam sterilizer. When this equipment is not working or is not available, boiling heat-resilient items in water for 20 minutes will kill VHF viruses.

I keep thinking about that. Being told that it really isn’t as bad as I think. Hell if it ain’t!
When I was a little girl, we walked to school. We would get there in the morning, and there would be the morning prayer. Right after that, we all said I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag, and they played the National Anthem. I started to school when I was four (4). By the time I was in fourth grade, it was like the second elementary school. They did not say the morning prayer, or play the anthem, but by golly, the whole time I was in school, we Pledged Allegiance to the Flag. We were proud to be Americans.
Now, you get suspended for wearing anything with a flag on it. The Ten Commandments, Pledge of Allegiance, and anything having to do with our natural heritage is bad. Christians are bad. Americans are bad. Christian Americans must be very, very bad. And who the hell decided all that? That is bullshit. Plain and simple, bullshit. Since when have other people gone to live in another country, and was allowed to claim they were offended by the customs of that country, and the country changed for the outsiders? Someone tell me when. That is bullshit! Plain and simple bullshit.
Seems like it began several years ago… SuperTarget in our area, told the GoodWill people at Christmas, not to come there any more. Of course, after that, we never went back to that store, and it closed shortly thereafter. For some reason, outsiders that had moved to the United States, were offended by Christmas, Nativity scenes, and GoodWill ringing their little bells at Christmas. Those dedicated, hardworking GoodWill employees, trying to make a difference to others at a very hard time of year. They never asked anyone for anything. Just stood, ringing the bell and smiling. It was tradition. Christmas trees, nativity scenes, GoodWill.
So, in order to not to offend those, who are not from here, America changed? Bullshit. I say, if our traditions offends you, you came into this country, you know you can leave the same damned way! Every time I turn around, someone is explaining that such and such offends them. Screw it! I am offended by what people do in other countries, but I don’t move there, then expect them to change their country for me. That is bullshit. Plain and simple bullshit.
Now, they tell us that our forefathers were terrorists. Do what? So what kind of History lessons are they giving kids now a days? Speaking of kids. Since when does the govt. have balls enough to tell parents what they are or not going to feed their kids for lunch during school? The other thing about kids, is that they belong to the community, not their parents? Bullshit! Plain and simple bullshit! And these idiots put up with that? I sure as hell am glad that my Mama was who she was. She would have not only told them what horse to get on, she would have had them direct that horse, on out of the country. And my Daddy, lo and behold, I am glad that he is not here to see this shit. Daddy was gung-ho Marine. He is probably rolling in his grave right now.
And someone wants to tell me, that it ain’t as bad as I think it is? Bullshit! Plain and simple bullshit!!!

DeKalb Commissioner Boyer could serve prison time
By Johnny Edwards and Mark Niesse
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Ok, I am going to go a little different direction with this post. I have something to say, and cannot wait any longer.
Everyone in the Office World, is familiar with HON office furniture, chairs, task chairs in particular I speak of. A while back, I ordered a chair to replace my old worn out chair that I spend 18-20 hours a day sitting in.
Of course, I skimped on the chair, trying to watch the money. Mainly because I didn’t have time to go around and check chairs out. Yall know me, I order everything over the internet, and rarely see in person what it is that I am buying. If I spend 18-20 hours a day at the computer, it leaves no time for shopping.
Anyway, I had always heard that HON chairs are “over-priced”, “not all that they are made out to be”, “not really all that comfortable”, you know… the kinds of things people say, when they cannot afford something. We’ve all heard that kind of thing before.
Anyway, my bestest friend, the one that passed away at the first of the year, he was having a garage sale. I don’t go to garage sales, but this particular day, I told James to come on and lets go out for a ride. I know, don’t gasp at my boldness, leaving the house and all…
Anyway, when I saw the HON, I immediately knew what it was. I had no idea how much was invested in the chair, or how much they would want for it. The cylinder was messed up and had slipped down and was digging into the ground. One of the females over at Donnie’s had been going round and round and round, and said that it just slipped down. Other than that, it was in perfect shape. I asked how much they wanted, and pointed out that the chair had issues. Ten Dollars!
Done deal. James did not quite understand the ramifications of such a chair. Now he always tells me “Make sure you don’t do this, or don’t do that, you will probably never be able to buy such a chair again”.
The other day, the cylinder had gotten to where it would not hold weight any longer. James looked at everything. This chair, let me tell you. It has the height adjustment through the cylinder, and three other levers. The seat tilts, it slides and tilts, the back is adjustable, and everything you can think of. I love it! Anyway, we determined that the cylinder had gone bad. James told me that he did not know for sure, but that we could surely afford a new cylinder.
I pulled up HON on the internet, and oohed and aahed at all the task chairs similar to my own. I was most impressed of course. I could not determine how to get parts, so emailed. That same day, they emailed me back. I was so surprised that I almost deleted the email without realizing who it was from. Long story short… The warranty covered the cylinder. A new one will be here 5-7 days, and they sent me instructions in the email letting me know about when to expect the cylinder.
Wow! I just had to share this good news with someone. I rarely have anything really good to say about anyone, especially companies nowadays. HON has found a friend in me though. I tell you what. Their people over there, are some of the most friendly, personable people I have dealt with in many years.
So while you are listening to all the reasons not to buy a HON…know deep down inside why people are telling you those reasons. I can tell you why you should. Compared to any other chair that I have attempted to sit in for 18-20 hours a day, the HON is the one that don’t cause my legs and feet to swell nearly as bad; it is perfect for everything, with all those adjustments, you can get around being chair fatigued. They are nice looking chairs. The people at HON are wonderful to work with. The complete chair, is also customizable. Is that a word? The speller in the computer says no, but we will go with it anyway.
